For a retreat that can't be beat, look no further.
This fully loaded three bedroom, two bathroom Fully Air-Conditioned home is located directly on Hale'Aha Beach in the quaint little town of Punalu'u, on the island of Oahu. More than anywhere else on Oahu, Punalu`u may be the most reminiscent of the Hawaii of the early to mid 20th century era. You will find that Punalu`u is a low-key, laid-back, friendly community.
The oceanfront living room is decorated in a traditional Polynesian style with comfortable, over-sized bamboo furnishings and the Living rooms 42'' plasma HDTV with DVR has the premium cable package so you'll never miss your favorite TV programs while out sightseeing.
The kitchen is fit for a Gourmet Chef with it's appliances, High-quality Stainless Steel pots and pans, grill pans, coffee grinder, toaster, blender, dishwasher, cooking utensils and too much more to mention.
You will have a lot of privacy at Hale'Aha Kai as there are no attached dwellings or other structures on the property... only the house itself. Our property offers the BEST views of the ocean, beach and Koolau Mountains from Laie to Kaneohe and our gated parking and fenced property adds additional privacy and security.
The yard is fully landscaped and has a large beachfront deck with built-in seating and lanai furniture including comfortable outdoor rocking chairs. The oceanfront backyard is perfect for sunning during the day, a cocktail at sunset, watching the moon rise over the ocean at night or just relaxing with the sound of the gentle waves lapping the sandy shoreline and your morning cup of tea or coffee tastes so much better with the BEAUTIFUL Sunrise over the Pacific Ocean
Step off the property onto Hale'Aha Beach who's soft-white sand invites you for a stroll and it's calm, clean, clear, turquoise-blue, ocean water calls you for a dip. This is a year-round swimming beach is perfect the entire family. The ocean conditions are also excellent for snorkeling and shore fishing and the local favorite Trevally "papio" can be had by even the novice fisherman. Later parts of the summer bring in the baitfish O'ama which attract the sweetest of the Trevally family, the"Omil'u,
Then again, catching the O'ama with the traditional light bamboo and 1# test line is exciting fun for anglers of all ages. Similar to the smelt or grunion, O'ama are DELICIOUS deep fried.
Of course we also provide a plethora of Ocean equipment like a pair of kayaks complete with oars and life jackets, boogie boards, snorkel gear, assorted "kiddie" toys beach chairs and more.
Punalu'u is located only 40-45 minutes from Honolulu International Airport, downtown Honolulu, and the hustle and bustle of Waikiki Beach, yet it seems worlds away in a beautiful country setting.
Heading North you will have two general stores within walking distance. A drive to the Polynesian Cultural Center is 10 minutes away and if you keep heading North, you'll find a full-size grocery store, movie theater, fast food choices, and some interesting local restaurants. Keep going and it's the famous Kahuku Shrimp Trucks, Turtle Bay Resort and Golf, and the North Shore if you want to attend a pro surf meet, visit Waimea Bay, Pipeline or Haleiwa.
If you need to check-in with the rest of the world, Hale`Aha Kai provides high-speed Wi-Fi cable internet access for your notebook computer and VOIP internet telephone service with free calling to the continental USA and Canada.
Another GREAT PLACE at a GREAT PRICE
I have been staying at hale'aha kai every year for more than a decade. I absolutely love it. The place is beautifully decorated, and the beach, which is literally a few steps away from the house, is serene and relaxing. And the 180-degree view of the ocean from the backyard isn't bad either. Golf (and all sorts of other activities) at Turtle Bay Resort is only about 15 minutes down the road, and there is wonderful snorkeling and sightseeing within 45 minutes of the house. If you are looking for something that allows you to experience the local flavor that Hawaii has to offer, this is a great choice. And did I mention that the house is right on the beach?!
If you will be sleeping in the master bedroom, get ready to listen to the waves lapping up against the seawall, which separates the backyard from the ocean. That actually may be the best part of the experience. I sleep like a king when I'm at hale'aha kai. And when I wake up, I usually make myself a bagel, grab some orange juice, and head back out to the deck to watch the sun rise over the ocean -- amazing!
This was an incredible getaway for us -- again. We'll be heading back next year, without a doubt. Enjoy!
I have spent several stress free vacations at this Punalu beach house and hope to return for several more. The house is ideally located, fronting on a sandy beach at the ocean’s edge. While the location is very private there is a convenient store for last minute provisions within walking distance. The house is fully equipped and very comfortable. It can easily sleep 6. We have enjoyed the use of snorkeling equipment, which is provided. We also have used the 2 kayaks that are available at the house. The house is ideal for a family get away.
I have had the pleasure of staying here on three separate occasions, mostly recently with my family. The house itself is in excellent condition and has everything you could possibly need. However once you enjoy the back patio and private beach, you won't want to be in the house. The property shows an amazing amount of owner's pride. If you are looking for an opportunity to have nothing and nobody between you and a beautiful, swim/kayak friendly ocean, this is the place to go.
We've probably stayed in fifteen beach houses in Hawaii, the Caribbean, California and Florida. Deborah's place stands out in two ways. 1) It is the homiest and best equipped and 2) Deborah is the most hospitable and attentive owner we've encountered.
Add to these traits that the location is very private, the snorkeling is the best we found on the island and the views are spectacular and this home is a wonderful place for a holiday.
The only thing that's not perfect is that there is traffic noise from the highway, but the sound of the waves covers most of it and here isn't much traffic at night.
We highly very recommend his beach house.

This review is way overdue. My husband, myself and our two young children (5 & 2yrs) spent a glorious week in this amazing home in September 2010. Debbie has made sure that her guests have everything, and I mean everything they need. The kitchen cabinets are filled with every condiment you can imagine. There's enough food in the pantry to get you by in case you arrive late and stores are closed. Everything from rice grains, oils, butter, etc. Pots and pans galore along with all kinds of silverware and glasses. She even had sippy cups and spiderman plastic spoons! We never had to buy dishwashing liquid or garbage bags or laundry detergent. The bathroom was well stocked as well with all kinds of shampoos and conditioners. On our first full day there we realized we'd forgotten to buy sun block. Well guess what? Debbie had two bottles in the medicine cabinet. We had the beach all to ourselves with the occasional couple strolling by walking along the shore. My children LOVED getting up just as the sun was rising and we would all run to the beach in our pajamas and watch the beautiful colors of the sky as the sun rose. My 5 year old still talks about kayaking in the blue waters with Daddy. Debbie has more water sports equipment than a store! And life jackets of EVERY size. We felt like we had the whole island to ourselves even though there was another home right next door. We actually spent alot more time at the house than we thought we would. Stores are a short walk or short drive away. We can't say enough about our time here. The house is beautiful and we took care of it as if it was our own. We loved it and hope to go back there again someday.
It was everything it was advertised to be. We loved it. Deborah has made the house have all the comforts of home. In some cases its more than what you would expect. It was far enough away from Honolulu to find yourself in slowed down summer paradise. It was like having your own personal beach. If you wanted to go sight seeing at Pearl Harbor in was only about an hour away. My wife and I took our two 21 year old sons and their girlfriends. We all had a blast snorkeling/kayaking and spending time on the beach. If you are lucky enough to stay at this property don't miss Ted's Bakery just north of the house. We got in late on Saturday and stopped at the Crouching Lion Restaurant after they closed and we had been traveling 20 hours they were more that a fried they were like a neighbor and took us in after hours and served us dinner. That pretty much sums up Punaluu. The area is very laid back and close early but always hospitable.
We will be going back to Hawaii in the future and we will stay here again. Don't miss it.
